South Pierce Fire & Rescue would like to thank the citizens of our district for their support in renewing the EMS Levy on August 2nd . The Levy passed overwhelmingly with an approximate 66%. This is the highest percentage in many years.

Big thanks to the Citizens Committee which included Commissioner Linboe, Commissioner Werner, Ronda Litzeberger, Alice Dowie, Baron Banks, Joel White, Skip Simmons, and Yanah Cook. Also, to all the members of Local #726 for their efforts and assistance with flyers, phone banking, sign waiving, and putting out signs.

As the Fire Chief, I want the people we serve to understand that we will continue to be good stewards of your financial support, and more importantly your trust moving forward. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns at, on Facebook, or by phone at 253-847-4333

In Safety & Service,
Fire Chief Todd Wernet
